Rear End ID

Hi again,
Here are some pics of my rear end
any one know what gear ratio I have?
I think it says 54 L on the tag and I'm assuming it's 9" but I have a real low granny gear and just wondering what the ratios are.




thanks again,

E

clean the tag closer to the nut, the ratio is before the numbers you depict.

I'm retarded... I cleaned the tag and got this...
So 3.25 gears? If so, I thought that was an ok ratio and not 'granny'.

3.25:1 ratio. Granny refers to a "double low" first gear on a manual trans.
